At the Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando Counties, we believe in creating a supportive community for children to be successful in school and life. Because every child deserves a quality education from day one.
What We Stand For
With years of knowledge and expertise, we are here to provide an invaluable resource to children in our community.
We believe that every child, caregiver, and teacher deserves the best resources for their success.
With unbridled support and compassion, it is our goal as an organization to represent those in need of guidance and direction.
We encourage and accept all walks of life so that we can prosper together as a community.
Steve Knobl Ph.D.
"A strong start in the earliest years of a child's life lays the foundation for their future. Quality early childhood experiences are key to helping kids to grow up healthy, productive, and contributing citizens to the economy. Eighty-five percent of brain growth occurs by the time a child is 4, and high-quality early childhood education is critically important for all children. I applaud the many leaders throughout the state that are champions for our early learners."
